I am planing my 1st elk hunt in wy I have 4 points and was looking for a good unit to get my 1st kill dosnt have to be a trophy for the 1st one. Just looking to find a good number of elk with descent public acess.
Take a look at the various units in the Big Horn Mountains in northcentral Wyoming. It's almost all National Forest with no problems for public access and there are plenty of elk throughout most of the units.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
